Today’s enterprises seek both to analyze more of their data and to reduce the costs related to their unanalyzed dark data.
One of the top challenges for BI and analytics professionals in a cloudy, big data world is data movement and integration . The growing complexity of reporting across large volumes of heterogeneous data stored in different environments is daunting due to the principles of data gravity . Even with fast networks and improved caching, architects need to design solutions with distance, bandwidth, throughput, and latency performance considerations in mind.
Recently I co-presented with Attunity as part of the 24 Hours of PASS webcast where we showcased architectural design patterns and...

Analytics is both the lifeblood and livelihood of digital native companies such as Google and Facebook which thrive by analyzing the data generated by their Web position to drive their access to and engagement with millions of people.
